I recently got a second-hand Thermador range (model PGR364GDZS [the model number for the propane version is PGR364GDLP]) which I need to convert from NG to LP. Except suposedly it's non-convertable, comes from the factory one way or the other. The best info I've been able to find on this issue has been from this forum, in this 2011 thread. http://appliantology...dor-pgr366zs01/
I contacted a local repair guy who has experience with Thermadors, and he called a Thermador engineer, who says that these ranges are not convertable because it is too hard to get to the burner orifices to change them. Can't be done without a whole lot of tearing apart, he says.
I'm willing to do "a whole lot of tearing apart" if necessary to make this work; I really love the range. What I'm not clear on is whether this is just a big pain in the ass, or really nearly impossible as claimed. Has anyone opened one of these things up?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
